Editors Note
Note Originally produced as a television special for Showtime, this fantastic live special features the now-deceased rocker Roy Orbison with several equally legendary rock performers. Friends and colleagues including Jackson Browne, Bruce Springsteen, Bonnie Raitt, Elvis Costello, and Tom Waits joined Orbison at Los Angeles's Coconut Grove in order to collaborate with and pay tribute to this irreplaceable rock and roll talent. Songs performed include many of the classic songs of romance that made him famous--from "Oh, Pretty Woman" to the tragic ballad "Crying." Shot in black and white, this performance looks as beautiful as it sounds, featuring at any one time a killer all-star band onstage, clearly loving every minute of playing with Roy, who of course outshines them all.
